This post is part of Amy’s LAPC # 124 Now and Then
This challenge reminded me of the ways, Corona Pandemic has changed our lives.
How is life now, which is said to be ‘New Norm’ and how was life then…which we all took for granted.
Starting from April 2020 to October 2020, this pavement had a deserted look.
And two windows are open.
Storm sewer cover is missing.
Now see the present status. You can notice an eatery pushcart and the seller busy with the customers.
And the windows are closed.
Storm sewer cover is replaced.
We notice the following obvious changes (Then & Now)
1.wishing– No hugging or handshaking, people missing the warm hug.Just Namaste- Indian style.
2.Face Mask- since people started wearing face masks, one has forgotten how a smiling face looks!
3. Washing hands. Earlier none cared to wash hands Now this has become a habit and in some, this became an obsessive-compulsive disorder.
4. Streets- No more Eerie feeling! The streets and pavements showing some return back of life though not in full strength.
5.Mindfulness & Stress relief– Mental and emotional well being gained much more importance.
6.Physical distancing– People have become aware of the physical distance in public places.
Can we go back to normal?
The changes are here to stay.
What do you think that is going to happen?
Please share your thoughts.
